Just a quick update... this weekend was a whirlwind of activity. All day Saturday, I hung out at Unraveled and enjoyed playing with fiber with a multitude of wonderfully talented knitters and crocheters who wandered through, including an adorable nine-year-old girl who knitted up a storm along with the rest of us. It rained part of the day and it was lovely to be cozy and warm and watch the raindrops falling out the wide front windows of the store. Afterwards, my husband and I went out to dinner with his family to a lovely little Thai restaurant in Monrovia and enjoyed a delicious meal and good company.
On Sunday, we went to the meeting of the Los Angeles Fiber Guild and continued exploring wet felting. This time, I worked on a purse using a resist and was pleased with the results. We were able to work outside as it was a gorgeous warm and clear day. Sluggo came along and made lots of new fiber friends as you can see. On the way home, we stopped for dinner and he enjoyed being spoon fed a little clam chowder and some ice tea. After all, it was a busy weekend. Aside from all the wonderfully stimulating inspiration of the many talented fiber folk at the guild, there was also the fact that I did not have to cook this weekend to make it even better. When we got home, Harley (the cat) was a bit annoyed at the fact that we had left him to his own devices for the day (two days in a row) and let his displeasure be known by verbally chewing us out for a good little bit. It was a glorious and enjoyable weekend of fiber and friends with plenty of hugs to go around for everyone.
